CARE CAMPAIGN FOR THE VULNERABLE WELCOMES DOMINIC GRIEVE MP TO OUR FIRST MEETING OF 2019
Dominic Grieve MP took time out of his very busy schedule to support Care Campaign for the Vulnerable by attending our monthly Network Meeting with many care industry professionals from Care Providers to dementia care professionals. He said 'The evidence you continually submit is very, very compelling for CCTV safety monitoring in communal areas to be made mandatory.''
Dominic Grieve MP took time out of his very busy schedule in Westminster today, to attend Care Campaign For The Vulnerable Network meeting at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Gerrard’s Cross Buckinghamshire. Mr Grieve, who supports our CCTV safety monitoring in communal areas in care homes initiative, was joined by Care Industry Professionals including Shedfield Lodge Care Home CEO Andrew Geach. Also i attendance was Sally Blackden Dementia Trainer, Paul Adams and Shaun Keep Say So, Trudi Schrivner CEO Ashridge Home Care, Families in care Karin Flower, Esme Dobson.
Jayne Connery, Founder of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable said ‘I am so pleased Dominic Grieve MP took the time to attend our networking meeting especially with his hectic Parliamentary schedule. Mr Grieve got the chance to hear about some of the care professionals who champion the benefits of CCTV safety monitoring and how transparency in the care delivery of our most vulnerable and their carers is so important to those who live and work in care homes. I am so incredibly grateful for the wonderful turnout by the many long serving care professionals who continue to support Care Campaign for the Vulnerable and are without doubt the driving force behind hopefully, one day CCTV safety monitoring in all U.K. care homes becoming mandatory”.
Dominic Grieve MP listening to the reasons many Care Providers have CCTV safety monitoring installed in their Care Homes Andrew Geach from Shedfield Lodge Care Home explained to Mr Grieve, ''We have to look at the falls that can happen or we are told has happened in predominantly communal areas. Procedures without CCTV would be call an ambulance as a precautionary measure in case there was a bump to the head. With CCTV we can look back and see if a ambulance would be needed. In a few cases, we have dealt with residents who have got confused thinking they had fallen when in fact they hadn't. This would without doubt save valuable resources to the NHS.''
Dominic Grieve MP told Care Campaign for the Vulnerable, '' We need to submit and commission a report with evidence from Care Providers like you have done so today - i can then submit this to the CQC and Government and keep up the pressure to hopefully in time getting CCTV in comunal areas in care homes mandatory. I find the evidence Care Campaign has submitted so far ...rather compelling.''
"The evidence from Providers who have installed CCTV seems to me to merit careful attention and to be quite persuasive"
